That is what happens when the wrong kernel is being used. For example
if I use the raspberrypi3 kernel with my raspberrypi2 machine.

I'm sure I put the right kernel in the package though.
and the config.txt will load vmlinuz.rpi3 kernel.


I think that Barry's release did the same (i.e. it didn't work). Maybe they borked something with the 3B+... Raspian installed without a hitch -- but it's not "familiar enough" for my taste.

I'll do some poking around... Smile

Also make sure SD Card is properly prepared.

Windows has special app ---> SD card formatter.

In linux you should wipe card using following command

You can install using Windows or a Linux computer
Format your micro SD card as fat32 using a windows or linux formatter.
In linux I recommend you zero out the card first...
Quote:
just do "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<flash-drive-device-name> bs=1M count=1". After doing this Gparted will regard you flash drive as completely empty and will offer to create a new MS-DOS partition table - which you should accept.

I had previously attempted to install Barry's version on this card, and reformatted it under WinXP -- since it create a second partition, I deleted them both under the XP tool, then reformatted to Fat32. (I thought that his not working might have been a SD error, so I pulled a second -- with same results. Then I reformatted that card, and tried Raspbian -- which installed fine).

I'll have to poke around some more -- it would be fun to get Puppy running on this. The Raspbian system looks too much like it's designed for someone who never wants to see a command line...and much of the time, that's where I live... Wink

I don't have a Pi3+ to test but I am guessing that it needs a newer version of the bootloader firmware and a newer kernel.

I took the bootloader firmware from
http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/firmware/r/raspberrypi-firmware-nokernel/raspberrypi-bootloader-nokernel_1.20180328-1~nokernel1_armhf.deb
and compiled a new kernel using kernel-kit from woof-CE because I am not familiar with how Fatdog compiles kernels and I don't think the official kernels include AUFS.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/n9mzhdat91quln3/bootloader-1.20180328_kernel-4.9.80-v7.zip?dl=1

This zip file only includes the new firmware and kernel, you will still need the rest of the files from the fatdogarm-pi3 zip file. I tested this on my Pi3, hopefully I didn't forget to include anything important in the zip file.

Thanks! I'll see if I can tinker a working solution together (and let you know if it works).

I grabbed the Pi3+ because I figured that the slightly faster processor would help me...

I need to redo the uSD card anyway. It appears that I bent the one I was testing (i.e. broke something inside -- I'm going to see if I can scrape the skin off, and patch it... Wink )
